Umberger's gonna be OK for us

Well, I see that the Phantoms beat Hershey 4-1 this evening. Pitkanen had three helpers and Umberger had two. I'm feeling really good about Umberger. I've read on some of the boards here that not a lot of people are impressed with his game and they think he'll be a third liner at best. Umberger now has 62 points in 78 games, not too shabby for someone who missed a year of his development.

Now you add Carter to the mix with the Phantoms and his nine shots that he had this evening and I'm kind of interested in seeing the Phantoms put Carter and Umberger on a line and build some chemistry between the two of them. Could make for something potent. I'm really liking the future in Philadelphia right now and I'm thinking that maybe a few teams maybe kicking themselves for writing Umberger off a little too early........
